The Truth Seekers is a brand-new ensemble led by composer, alto saxophonist and (budding) vocalist Jenna Cave. Performing a new collection of music, from soulful songs to melodic contemporary jazz sounds, this ensemble showcases Cave’s recent compositional explorations for a smaller ensemble, brought to life and shaped by some of her favorite musicians, improvisers and people in Sydney.

“This [Cave’s music] is virtuoso horn writing– as much about texture as it is about melody and narrative” – John Hardaker, Australian

“Cave writes with depth and maturity well beyond her years” – Jack Bowers, All About Jazz
